WHO WE ARE
The Bulichella is the fruit of an almost 20,000-kilometre-long dream: a beautiful road through India, Pakistan, and Iran on his two-stroke Yamaguchi 125. He arrived in Italy in 1960 for the Rome Olympics and the Turin Motor Show. In just one day he met the woman who would become his wife and Giorgetto Giugiaro, a design genius who played an important role in the export of Italian automotive design to Japan. In Turin it was too cold and so his journey continued to Tuscany where in 1983 he created La Bulichella with the idea that agriculture could be done without chemical fertilizers, respecting the naturalness of the earth. His 7 children were born in Italy and La Bulichella remains a gesture of love of a family from another continent. Miyakawa Hideyuki could see where the world was going. Thirty years ago, he considered the territory an important value to be treated, rather than exploited. In the 1980s it was an almost visionary company and an authentic farmhouse that still maintains a strong identity. Garden products, extra virgin olive oil but above all organic wine. “Our philosophy leads us to produce a wine of value that is the faithful expression of the territory, which tells of our respect for nature and which reflects the authenticity of vintages that are never the same”. The identity is that of the territory and the goal is to keep this characteristic stable, strongly linked to the idea that respect for people and nature comes before profit. At the beginning, production was centred on Sangiovese, a little bit of Vermentino, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Over time, research and experimentation have led to the identification of the international varieties that best interpret territory of Suvereto. Today we can say that the Cabernet Sauvignon is particularly enhanced by the characteristics of this territory and the climate here. The other vines that are grown in Bulichella are Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Vermentino, Sangiovese and Grenache. The latest is the Montecristo, a perfect synthesis of this terroir and a blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot. With this wine, the goal is to achieve the highest quality by narrating 30 years of history of a very varied territory. It is called Montecristo because Hideyuki loves Dumas and the count of the island seen from the vineyards. Hide, on the other hand, is a pure Syrah that takes its name from Hideyuki and the English hyde, meaning “hidden”.
How is Suvereto seen from Bulichella? A very welcoming place where you live simply and where you can smell the scent of home; a place where it is worth stopping after a journey of twenty thousand kilometres by motorbike and where to put down family roots; a place where love smells of wine; Suvereto is the cradle of an ancient history, Etruscan and Roman land, so ancient that it belongs to all of us. For the humanity of this place, it is enough to go to the village on market day: voices, looks and stories, eyes and hands, sighs, and smiles.
